This week has been a week of sorts, Kevin turned 25 on Monday!! IT was fun but probably more fun for me. Kevin never gets into holidays, birthdays or really anything. I am the opposite, I get all jazzed up about any reason to celebrate, to throw a party or to go shopping! We got to enjoy dinner at Olive Garden but cut it short on the account of a fussy baby whom we love so much. Wednesday and Thursday were a blur me and Kevin both felt really sick to our stomachs and Kevin was really lightheaded and felt like he was going to pass out. Let me tell you being sick isn't that hard, until you have a sweet precious baby who depends on you so much. We will cut this pity party short and just say we are still a little spazzed and sleep deprived. Not alone trying to get my homework in before it's due, and thinking will I really be able to finish this.This week I have been having a struggle with myself. Am I being a good enough mom? Am I giving Klay all the attention he needs? Is he developing right, am I feeding him to much? I want to speed up time yet he's growing up too fast. Then I turn to myself man it has already been 2 months and this baby weight.. oh hello there, yupp it's still there and those stretch marks I can go ahead and live with the fact that they will always be there. It's hard sometimes, I feel like especially in California that all the girls are SO tiny. They have a baby and boom they are back to where they were before they even began. My point is life is hard, people are always going to have bigger and better things but there is always someone who will have it worse than I do to. It's times like these I am grateful to just think about the many things I do have! Klayton & Kevin The gospel & scriptures Loving parents &siblings Life in general, where its always sunny and 75+ A place to live, a car to drive, and food to eat It's the simple things, Here are some things that have made me happy this week :)

It has been a while since I have last blogged and I am sad because I love to stay in touch with friends and family members. What have we been up to you ask? Well since my mom left, Kevin's parents came to visit for a bit and then a week or so after my mom and dad got to come back!! They came for their spring break and Klayton's baby blessing. It was such a special day Kevin's parent and grand parents came as well as his brother Bryan and my parents. Kevin gave such a sweet blessing. I love my little family so incredibly much!! When Klayton was born my mom kept telling me, "YOU KEEP THAT BABY IN, YOU DO NOT WANT HIM GETTING SICK!" Somewhere between then and when she came back she decided we could go out and do some things with her and my dad! We had a blast, we went to downtown Disney, We went to a couple of beaches( which my mom would live in the sun if we would let her) we went whale watching and got such a great show of the whales, Well my mom and dad did I got incredibly sea sick!! We did so much I can not remember but here are some pictures from those adventures and Klayton in his blessing suit. I am not a fan of those white weird sailor suits so just a regular suit would fit this little boy just fine and he was SO HANDSOME! So go ahead and laugh all you want at me being layed over sick, i swear that last hour could have not gone any slower I was so glad to be back on solid ground when we got there! My mom is a total Babe and my dad is so handsome. The whale watching cruise we went on was so cool, they gave us a really nice cannon camera to use while we were out and let us keep the SD card with the pictures after. My dad did such a good job of being a photographer. When their trip was coming to an end I was lucky enough to go back with them!! We had so much fun! I was nervous about traveling by myself on the airplane I took a different airline than my parents but we left at the same time and I got there about 15 minutes after them so it worked great. It was good to be home and have company at lunch and after work. It seems like Kevin is always so busy when he gets home and works to far away to come home for lunches. Needless to say we cherish our weekends together just him, I and baby Klay. Kevin recently started on his Masters degree, GO KEVIN!!! He has so much ambition and I am over here struggling to continue with my degree but I am so close I can taste it!! I just have a little more to go and I will FINALLY have my bachelors. It's a different story when you have a baby and going to school and spend time with said baby and get errands ran, and work out to lose those baby lbs and have dinner ready... Okay enough of my pitty party I'm not the first who is doing this and definitely not the last. It is so hard though I never want to leave Klayton alone I can hardly wait when he is down for a nap to get him up and play again, I can never give him enough cuddles or enough kisses. OKAY ENOUGH. I LOVE THAT BOY! Back to Colorado we had so much fun and since it isn't in our budget to get newborn pics because everyone charges INSANE amounts of money for some pictures me and my mom set out to take some on conference morning. I laugh because we are obviously am-matures but they are still cute and we still get to look back on those pictures although I though I was going to murder my mom after about an hour of taking pictures I was tired and so way Klay but they are soo cute!
